    Dont want to ruin the front lawn with a ton of weight on front grass. They will drop off the sand and cement in ton bags. Is it best to put down some ply or scaffold planks first?


    The concrete path is being laid in the back garden so the cement and sand will be wheelbarrowed around on tarmac. I guess not dropping it is pretty important

    It's not the weight (pressure) that will damage your grass, it's the loss of light. If the bags aren't going to be there long, then don't worry. If they are, then broad sheets of timber will kill more grass than squat slats.

    If it's going to be shovelled into barrows on the grass then it's guaranteed that you'll end up with material spilt on the lawn, and the grass ruined by trampling anyway! So if you had a few old sheets of ply down, it would make it easier to clean up
